This 12-year-old girl with a maroon head scarf and soulful eyes lives in the Anjar Refugee Camp in Lebanon. Like many children, she’s forced to work to help support her family. She works long hours in the hot sun in a field close to Anjar, removing weeds from a parsley field or picking potatoes. She says that the work hurts her back, she gets regular headaches and there is no water provided. She and her sister don’t go to school; they work to support their seven sisters and two brothers. She only gets paid once a year. Photo credit:  Louis Leeson / Save the Children, 2016.
